Summary: Not as good as some of the older titles, but still an enjoyable game. And having played the sequel to this one too, I'll have to admit I've liked the first one better. Slightly more difficult, even if the sequel added a whole bunch of stuff. It's pretty silly when it comes to the storyline though, on one hand it's trying to be all mature and serious, but on the other... Hey, it's Pokémon. The best way to describe it would probably be "edgy".
Summary: This is probably the first Pokemon game where I've actually enjoyed the plot. Every other Pokemon game is just, snag all of the pokes, and then make a boss team. This one was different though. I wish more Pokemon games followed this.
